four miles from where the shooting happened. when we know when the press conference will happen here at san jose police, we will let you know both on air and online. in san jose, kris sanchez. >> thank you very much. authorities this morning have not yet revealed the identities of a father who shot his daughter then himself in a murder/suicide in capitola. a heart breaking story. it unfolded yesterday in a parking lot at the capitola mall. a woman called 911 saying her husband was at the mall and was suicidal. the man and girl were found inside the car. each died at the scene. it's 4:35. coming up, the monday bluings could have more oomph today if you had your bracket busted. we'll highlight yesterday's march madness surprise. and uber is looking for a new driver. wi reeda n pride.

welcome back. a very good monday morning to you. doesn't it look beautiful out there? you know, on the first day of spring, a little christmas cheer. that is live look at redwood ci city. i like when cities leave the lights up like that. it's pretty at night. good morning. 4:43. a look at weather and traffic together. change in the forecast, kari. >> a lot of changes. it's been dry and warm but we're in for cooler and wetter weather for spring. kind of flipped around. san jose, we start out with dry conditions this morning. as you step out, it's breezy. spring just starred about an hour and 20 minutes ago. and the rain returns as we go through the day. some gus ti winds possible. you can already feel some of the breezy winds now, and then we'll also have a chance of some thunder and maybe some small
hail as we start to see more showers and storms moving in. we'll talk about the time line. getting a look at the temperatures now in the mid to upper 50s and the seven-day forecast is now coming up at the bottom of the screen, you will see that we will have some rain pretty much every day except thursday in the forecast. so going to be a very wet week. and looking at highs today reaching into the mid-60s, it's already windy in the peninsula. and we'll see times of rain today in the trivalley, up to 67 today, 60 in the northbound and san francisco up to 65 degrees. going to see those cooler temperatures in the north bay where we start to see the rain moving in a little earlier. a look at that big storm system that will start to work its way in. and it will bring in some spotty light showers starting out. that's about all we've seen so far, but just that reminder that you will need the umbrella as we go through the day as we continue to see more of this rain moving in. so looking at the hour by hour outlook, not a whole lot going on here before lunchtime, but
then we will start to see some spotty light rain move thing into the north bay this afternoon and it gets heavier as we go into this evening with pockets of heavy downpours and the potential of some thunder and lightning, maybe even some small hail as we go into tonight as well as tomorrow, off-and-on rain. once again at times it will be a little heavier but there will be some breaks in between. heading into tuesday in the afternoon, going to see at time some rain passing until wednesday, when we start to see this storm system winding down. but we are expecting three storm systems this week and the potential with this first round bringing us anywhere from an inch and a quarter to two inches of rain in pockets in the north bay and for-spots like san jose up to half an inch of rain and much higher for the santa cruz mountains. this is the first storm system. the second moves in as we head into wednesday. the third one moves in on friday and continues into saturday. so once again looks like only thursday will be the dry day of the week and we'll still see some active weather heading into
next week. as we go through that seven-day forecast, once again that slight chance of some showers, thunderstorms, and possibly some lightning for tomorrow. some showers on wednesday, cool and dry on thursday and highs in the upper 50s for most of the week. so as we officially start spring, it will feel more like winter around the bay area and more active weather. heading over to mike, now, calling out hayward and san jose. >> that's because that's where we have our traffic activity. san jose is a bigger issue. northbound 880, hayward, an earlier crash on the shoulder that will be a dris traction. not a problem towards the north san mateo bridge. to the south bay, overall things are looking good but 101 by sjc, this is still blocking the two right lanes. i'm told there's a bigger pickup truck with a bust ee eed axel
blocking the right two lanes. it's also affecting the brokaw off ramp. 880 north taking brokaw over there, that will get you past the scene. we'll get a little more detail. that was northbound 101 at brokaw. over here, the trivalley looks like an easy drive coming in west bound. something we saw from our live camera, i didn't notice this before but it's very clear. look at the top of your screen. you can see off the altamont pass. it's clear right here. clear toward livermore. amazon wants to make sure you look good. the internet giant has a new way to help you drisess. >> for more on that, landon dowdy at cnbc world headquarters. good morning. >> you guys give me tough competition. futures are lower this morning and the markets are coming off a positive week, although it was a
